Our society has been misled toward tolerance for homosexuality in personal, ecclesiastical, and civil spheres. Study of the Scriptures should bring us to contest and challenge these popular assumptions in all of these three areas. Individuals should disapprove of and oppose homosexuality as immoral. Churches should decline membership and office to unrepentant homosexuals. States should restrain homosexuality rather than making it a civil right. We must equally insist that individuals not take a holier-than-thou attitude toward homosexual sin, that churches faithfully proclaim the good news of deliverance to homosexuals, and that the state not persecute them by entrapment, invasion of privacy, or intentionally selective and uneven attention.

Since parenting is such a crucial task to get right, isn't it a little frightening that so many parents feel utterly clueless? Scripture stresses parents' responsibility to teach their children right spiritual values. Self-control, not mere self-esteem, is crucial to the biblical approach.
